Leeds Teaching Hospitals starts search for your ‘Hospital Hero’
Tuesday 20th March 2018
Leeds Teaching Hospitals (LTHT) is inviting patients and the public to nominate their ‘Hospital Hero’ as part of their annual staff awards campaign.
The Trust’s annual Time To Shine awards celebrate the fantastic work of its 17,000 staff, giving an opportunity to share best practice and recognise the great care teams provide to patients every single day.
‘Hospital Hero’ is a very special award encouraging patients and their loved ones to say thank you to staff who have looked after them over the last 12 months.
Three shortlisted entries will then be put to the public vote, and the winner announced at the Trust’s Time To Shine event in July.
Julian Hartley, Chief Executive of Leeds Teaching Hospitals, said: “We are incredibly proud of our people here at LTHT, many of whom go the extra mile to provide the best possible care for our patients. Every day I am delighted to read letters and emails from patients and their families sharing the fantastic experiences they’ve had in our hospitals and with our staff in the community.
Our Time To Shine awards are an opportunity for us to formally recognise the exceptional work our teams do. If you’ve had a great experience with our staff, then please do consider nominating them for a ‘Hospital Hero’ award.”
You can nominate your Hospital Hero on our website - visit www.leedsth.nhs.uk/hospital-hero. Nominations close 5pm on Friday 30 March 2018.
The winner of last year’s Hospital Hero award was the Twins and Multiples Midwifery team, who were nominated for their support of parents expecting multiple births, including the development of networking events and support groups.
Kathryn Harper, Specialist Midwife, said: “We felt so honoured to be nominated for the Hospital Hero award in 2017. This was such a lovely way to get recognition from our women of how hard we work to provide the best care for families having multiple pregnancies.
Our Hospital Hero award stands proud in our office and we’re looking forward to seeing who will be the winners this year!”
